A short story with a long history.

Opposite the northwest door of the parish church was the church farm, belonging to the »Kirchbauer«; it was once known as »Beim Ave-Bauern«, because it was the owner’s responsibility to ring the Ave Maria bell early in the morning and when dusk fell. Up until 1820, the Ammergau Passion Plays took place in the old graveyard located between the parish church and this farm. The stage, called a »playing platform«, leaned against the north wall of the church and the audience sat or stood around it in the free area between the farmhouse and the church.

Hans Zwink the Younger, a great-grandson of the famous »Lüftlmaler« (fresco painting) family, decorated the house with colourful frescos in the style of the old façade paintings of the last decade (meaning the 1960s). (…) The themes and composition reveal the enduring traditions of a highly-prized town.
